Tiny Alaskan Island Has Awesome Amount of Pride

Yes, I apologize for the click-baity headline. But it’s rare these days that I can share good news from Alaska… or for that matter anywhere in the US. This news comes from the tiny Alaskan island of Wrangell. For those unfamiliar with the ridiculously huge geography of Alaska – Wrangell is 1,073 miles from the states largest city, Anchorage – that of course includes at least one ferry ride with your car.

Yes, that’s still Alaska. Wrangell is almost between Seattle and Anchorage.

The population of Wrangell, according to the 2010 census was 2,369. That didn’t stop it’s residents from making a great showing for their Pride this year.

Thankfully a Wrangell resident, Vivian Faith Prescott‏, shared these snapshots from the march and rally. You can see the rest on Vivian’s twitter feed – @planet_alaska.

Make sure you check out her website as well with poetry and mosaics and more. Thanks Vivian for sharing!
